Parent Carer Forum



Empower and enable your voices to be heard

West Berkshire Parent Carer Forum

Welcome to West Berks Parent Carer Forum!

We are a friendly group of parent carers who have children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities aged from 0-25 years.

We want to improve our local services, and by coming together as a collective, we can and do make changes.  We love the video below and think the video below explains it perfectly. We are always happy for more people to join us,  there’s no charge to join, we are completely free, and we are a relaxed fun group.  So if you would like to be part of friendly bunch of people who would like to see SEND changes in West Berkshire,  we would love to have you    

As a Forum we can support and train parent carers to enable them to have their voices and opinions count, and to be involved with shaping services alongside the professionals who provide health, education, adult and social services.

Our shared mission is to improve and enhance the experiences and opportunities of children and young people with additional needs, by enabling parents and carers to be heard,  and to be at the heart of decisions about development and delivery of services in West Berkshire.

The forum  represent the views of the collective community and not an individual voice, we are unable to advocate for individual families, but can  signpost to specialist services.
